I have been listening to Pusha-T’s new album, My Name Is My Name, non stop since it came out and when I had some downtime over the holidays I started to mess around with a concept I had for his track Nosetalgia. The lyrics on this song are super visual and I wanted to put something really simple together that illustrated what the song was about. I spent days digging through photos online hunting for the perfect images to match the words… and this is what I came up with.
If any of you muhfuckaz have Netflix and like a good documentary about classic shit, I suggest watching “Drew: The Man Behind The Poster” asap.
This doc tells the story of illustrator Drew Struzan, the man responsible for countless iconic movie posters and even popular album covers. All done by hand, all incredibly awesome. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to The Future, Coming to America etc… pretty impressive. I’m honestly shocked that I never thought to investigate who was behind all this great stuff. SMH for real!
Click below for some examples of his work, peep his portfolio, then check out the documentary on Netflix.
